The term Bachelor of Fine Arts is the most usual designation for the professional undergraduate degree in art and design.  This degree requires that at least 65% of overall course credit be in the creation and study of art and design.*  Students enrolled in professional undergraduate degrees in art and design are expected to develop the knowledge, skills, concepts and sensitivities essential to the professional life of the artist/designer.  In any of many possible roles, the professional must exhibit not only technical competence, but also broad knowledge of art/design, the ability to integrate art/design knowledge and skills and an insight into the role of art/design in intellectual and cultural life.
